Please join us for the film screening of “In My Blood It Runs”, a documentary film following the life of an Indigenous child in Australia (see more information about the film below). Following the film screening, there will be a panel discussion on Indigenous education and factory schools with Jo Woodman of Survival International and Malvika Gupta, a PhD student from the University of Oxford working on Indigenous education in India and Ecuador.

Event is located at the Faculty of Education Donald McIntyre Building in room 1S7.


Ten-year-old Dujuan is a child-healer, a good hunter and speaks three languages. As he shares his wisdom of history and the complex world around him we see his spark and intelligence. Yet Dujuan is ‘failing’ in school and facing increasing scrutiny from welfare and the police. As he travels perilously close to incarceration, his family fight to give him a strong Arrernte education alongside his western education lest he becomes another statistic. We walk with him as he grapples with these pressures, shares his truths and somewhere in-between finds space to dream, imagine and hope for his future self.
